  • George Devine Award - 2007

An arresting 60-minute debut play about dislocation, manipulation and power.

From rural backwater to shiny new capital city in one easy move. Perfectly formed. Politically constructed. When your leader plays pin the tail on the donkey with the nation's map, the bureaucrats are bound to be moved and everyone will follow.

You can't stop the march of progress, no one can.

Alexandra Wood's play The Eleventh Capital was first staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in February 2007, and won the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright.
